Making Beds in Relation to AirBnB Cleaning

Making Beds in Relation to AirBnB Cleaning

Making the bed is an important part of the cleaning process for short-term rental accommodation. A neatly made bed not only improves the overall appearance of the room, but also provides a comfortable and welcoming space for guests. Here’s an explanation of bed making as it relates to the cleaning of short stay rental accommodation:

Strip and Remove Linens

Start by removing all used linen, including bed sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers and mattress protectors. Place them in a designated laundry bin or bag for washing.

Inspect the Mattress and Pillows

Take a moment to inspect the mattress and pillows for stains, damage or signs of wear. Address any problems immediately by spot cleaning or replacing the affected items.

Adding a Mattress Protector

It can be wise to place a fresh mattress protector under the bottom sheet to protect the mattress from spills, stains and allergens. Make sure it is evenly distributed and properly fitted.

Fit Bottom Sheet

Start by placing a clean, properly sized bottom sheet over the mattress. Ensure that the sheet lies flat and is firmly secured around the corners of the mattress. Tuck in any excess fabric neatly.

Fitting a Top Sheet

Place a clean, pressed top sheet over the bottom sheet. Make sure it is centred and evenly distributed across the mattress. Tuck in the bottom end of the sheet at the foot of the bed.

Arrange Pillows

Place pillows at the head of the bed. Use pillow protectors or pillowcases that match the overall bedding design. Fluff and arrange pillows to create an inviting display. Consider adding decorative pillows or cushions for an extra touch.

Add Duvet or Comforter

If applicable, place a clean and appropriately sized duvet or comforter over the top sheet. Make sure it is evenly distributed and covers the entire bed. Fluff and arrange the duvet or comforter to make it look good.

Fold and Tuck

Fold the top sheet and duvet or quilt neatly back towards the foot of the bed. This creates a folded edge, often called a ‘hospital corner’, which gives a neat and tidy appearance. Tuck the folded edges firmly under the mattress for a secure fit.

Final Touches

Stand back and inspect the bed for any creases, uneven edges or loose ends. Smooth out any creases or folds in the sheets and duvet or comforter. Adjust pillows and cushions as necessary for an aesthetically pleasing presentation.

Attention to Detail

Bed-making in short-term rental accommodation should be done with attention to detail and consistency. It is important to use fresh, clean and well-pressed bed linen, which contributes to a comfortable and inviting sleeping environment for guests. By making beds in a professional and appealing manner, you will enhance the overall cleanliness and presentation of the rental property, leaving a positive impression on guests.
